Anyone see this movie? In my opinion, the critics were harsh; it was a pretty decent move and kept me entertained throughout. However, I did feel that Vincent Ngo, who wrote the script in 1996 (it was passed around Hollywood for about ten years including a pass by Warners) could have done so much more with the story. I liked that, while the back story was filled in, it wasn't beat on so much that it took away focus from the main storyline.

While his character didn't require him to dig too deep to pull it off (it was a popcorn flick after all), I enjoyed Will Smith's performance in the movie. Then again, I've always been a fan so maybe I'm biased.

My only real gripe with the film was that the best ending point was skipped over. Without spoiling anything, I'll just say that it was the scene before the "One Month Later" scene.

I actually wish there was a novel associated with the film because I would love to see the true depth to this story but alas, no luck.

With The Dark Knight's less than uplifting ending and Hancock's completely new take on the superhero genre, perhaps we're in store for a new era of hero films... I've always said it's more entertaining when the man responsible for mankind is an imperfect as those he protects.

Discuss.
 
This is the kind of movie where they write the novel after the film comes out. It was mediocre. It had potential, but the whole twist with ol' blondey whats-her-name ruined the film.

Yes my thoughts exactly, as soon as the plot twist with her occured it was all downhill.
